Living the Beatitudes: Discovering the Mystical Truth of Jesus’ Words
Time & Location
About the Retreat
“Consider that the [Aramaic] word Jesus uses, which we have traditionally translated as ‘kingdom,’ is related to the word for the ‘Great Mother’ in the Middle East; the word we translate as ‘daily bread’ means nourishment of all kinds and derives from the roots for the divine feminine and for Holy Wisdom or Sophia.” — Matthew Fox
Emergence from this very difficult year of pandemic can be seen with the eyes of the heart as a great birthing of a new world. How do we align ourselves with this vision, join in this “one great act of giving birth?” What could be better guidance than the Beatitudes, Jesus’ instructions for realizing the Kingdom of Heaven right here on earth. And when we revisit his teachings with the help of Neil Douglas-Klotz’s translations from Aramaic, Jesus’ own language, we are brought home to a transformed relationship with the cosmos.
Join us as we give ourselves―body, mind and emotion―to this labor of love.
